Justin Vernon and Volcano Choir play Chicago’s Metro

Four years after Justin Vernon’s side band released its debut, Volcano Choir is touring a second album, Repave. Fans of Bon Iver should appreciate Volcano Choir’s music. It’s Vernon backed by a band that creates a big, full sound compared with the more intimate folkiness of Bon Iver. The downside is Volcano Choir isn’t quite as interesting as Vernon’s better-known project.

Still, this looks to be a good show. Volcano Choir plays Metro Friday night. Volcano Choir is actually Vernon’s second side project of the year. In April, he released Grownass Man as the Shouting Matches, a trio that plays more of a country blend.

    Have you heard of Blind Boys of Alabama? They’re a gospel group…Justin Vernon produced their newest record. Listen to the record and you may recognize some other indie artists in the mix. http://a641.g.akamai.net/f/641/26063/1d/c1.smecde.com/akamai/upload/prod/mps/catalog_68/000/000/509/asset_1987/G0100030487011_TheBlindBoysOfAlabama_TheMakingOfIllFindAWay_Short.mp4
